If you have a crooked smile, you should look into cosmetic dentistry for crooked teeth. It is easy to assume braces are the only choice, but when you do not want to put the time and finances into such a treatment, you may be interested in learning about other options. With our cosmetic dentistry for crooked teeth, two of our most common treatments for patients who dislike their teeth are tooth contouring and dental veneers.
What is tooth contouring?
Tooth contouring and reshaping treatment is one of the most affordable routes for fixing crooked teeth. It works best on patients with specific teeth that stick out or are clearly misplaced. During our tooth contouring process, we use special shaping tools to scrape off and buff certain portions of dental enamel in order to create a more attractively shaped tooth. Those that have enamel removed will be sealed with a bonding material to protect it from decay, sensitivity, and damage. In some cases, we might even use our state-of-the-art laser sculpting techniques. Our tooth contouring will allow your teeth to fit together in a more attractive manner and also provide a better flossing ground for your at-home dental care.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers, or porcelain veneers, are one of our most popular treatments, not just for improving crooked teeth, but also for fixing alignment issues and poorly shaped and discolored teeth. Our dental veneers are applied to the tooth fronts with a strong dental glue. They are thin, tooth-colored shells that will rest comfortably on your teeth and feel natural once placed. Depending on the state of your teeth, veneers may require part of your tooth to be shaped to allow for a flatter resting surface. Our dental veneers can be created and placed in two appointments, and provide immediate results. Veneers are also more affordable than most traditional straightening methods.
Is cosmetic dentistry for crooked teeth painful?
No matter which procedure you choose, we will make sure you are completely comfortable before we start working. We will provide the necessary anesthetics so you do not experience any discomfort during or following your treatment. Both of these treatments are minimally invasive, so they will not take long or cause discomfort.
Do you provide any other forms of cosmetic dentistry for crooked teeth?
Yes. Our crowns are another common option for crooked teeth that stand out. We can place a crown over a misshaped tooth that will give it a whiter and straighter appearance. When you visit our office for cosmetic dentistry for crooked teeth, we can go over a few other commonly used options as well.
Come and visit our cosmetic dentistry for crooked teeth. Don't settle for time-consuming straightening treatments that will require constant orthodontic visits and may cause discomfort after every adjustment. We can give you the attractive, long-lasting results you've always wanted, in a short amount of time.
